  • Short update:
    • started work on adding a prep table, I'd love to add a 1" granite table top but it would cost me as much or even more than the whole project combined up to now. So I'll probably just cast a top and tile it or something.
    • finally repleced the makeshift uninsulated aluminum oven door with an insulated one. Thanks to Kvanbael for kindly giving me his leftover Calsil, and providing insight on how to make it !
    • applied a cement render over the concrete blocks of bottom half of the oven, still needs paint, but need to finish the table first.

    next weekend we'll have another pizza party!

    • It all came out very nice! Are you going to add any pavers (or similar) to make an area to stand on while firing and cooking? I can see that nice grass getting trampled/muddy in the wet season.

      • Yep, that's the plan, but will be a project for next year, too much other stuff to do around the house this year

        • Looks good from here (California). How's the oven holding up?

            I always wanted to try and cast a concrete countertop, have you considered that?
            My current BBQ island countertop is tiled and keeping the grout clean is a real pain.

              Hi, it's holding up fine.

              Had some time over the holidays and cooked some more sourdough breads, osso bucco and Irish beef stew, all from one firing.

              The cracks inside the dome are there to stay, but don't seem to grow anymore...

                Hi, I went with the poured concrete countertop. Here it is now in rainy weather, so yeah, there already moss growing on top of it, impossible to keep superclean.
                I don't really mind and I just put some tablecloth over it when in use. might still tile it in the future when I stumble onto something nice but i can imagine the difficulty in keeping the grout clean!

                I also finally got around to painting the whole thing (apart from the tabletop) and replaced the wooden board trims below the roof edges at the side with some leftover slate ones.

                • Looks great. It should be easy to clean with a pressure washer once the weather gets better
